Cynthia Crofoot

From a very young age it was apparent that Cynthia was born to tell stories. As a child, she would write short plays, cast her friends and perform them to a captive audience - her parents.

For the next many years, Cynthia's main focus was telling stories as an actor. However, she always longed for scripts that portrayed strong female characters in historically male-dominated roles. She desired scripts where women could be cops, FBI Agents, and military personnel - characters with robust story arcs and unique challenges to overcome in complex, nuanced worlds.

To fulfill that need, she wrote her first screenplay. A female-driven cop thriller called “Bracewater” which went on to win several awards. Following that success, her next screenplay, a short sci-fi called "Savior", also received acclaim.
